I wonder if and why I should get a card reader. I am not a pro, shoot on weekends and on workshops and trips. I have never been a machine gun type of photographer eg. on my 4 week trip to Botswana and SA last year I took about 4000 pics.
I just hook my camera straight to the computer and am happy to do chores or paperwork or talk on the phone while the pics download. So, do i need a card reader? Does it harm the camera to download pics directly?
Thanks for your advice,
